Multiple spatial scaling and the weak coupling approximation. Part 2. Homogeneous kinetic equation
Abstract
A modified form of the Bogoliubov plasma cluster expansion is applied to the derivation of a divergencefree kinetic equation from the BBGKY hierarchy. Special attention is given to the conditions under which the Landau kinetic equation may be derived from this more general formulation.
